    I didn't discern the vinegar either, but these are very good mashed potatoes nonetheless.

    Very yummu mash! If you like your spuds with sour cream, but for some reason can't use it (none in the fridge, for eg.), the vinegar in this mash makes it taste somewhat like if it had sour cream in it. But you have to use a bit more than just 1/2 tsp for 3 1/2 lb of potaotes. Use more like 2 tbs and more, if you dare, to have any affect.

    Very good! What's not to like about potatoes, milk, heavy cream and butter? ;) Honestly, I don't think that teeny 1/2 tsp cider vinegar does anything in that amount of potatoes, but nevertheless, they taste great! Thanx for posting the recipe; it's a keeper!

    Yummy! I did use half and half instead of cream. This was great and my husband ate it with hamburger gravy!
